Holy Father, Curia on retreat

The Vatican YouTube channel has posted a short video which gives you an idea of what it's like to be in the Redemptoris Mater chapel this week, as Pope benedict and the Curia complete their Lenten exercises.

In particular, notice how the Pope does not sit with the rest of the attendees.  To give him some privacy whilst on retreat (as well as to prevent him from being a distraction to others as they attend the retreat), he sits in an adjoining room that has a view of the sanctuary.
